First, thanks for you support. Over the past week or so this site has started to really take off. You can tell that by looking at the dates of posts in this forum alone. :) :D THANKS!! :)

However, this has caused a problem: more traffic = more load on the server (we are on a shared server) and more bandwidth used. I just recieved an email from my ISP stating that I have approximetly two days of bandwidth left.

I hate to do this, but to keep theis site alive I am going to have to ask for donations. This is a short term solution, long term we will have advertisers and vendors. As you can tell by the "demographics" polls I am already working on that.

The money donated will be used to keep this site alive until we can find advertising, which I project to be two months. Next month after the STi is announced, I expect a large traffic increase that MIGHT warrant a dedicated server (at a cost of $150 per month to start).

We are going to have to go dedicated at some point, but it may be that soon. Donations in the short term will help with that also. I am not trying to make a business of this, but at this point I cannot spend any more of my money on this site. I have already spent $500+ of my own money on this site.

So if you can even give just a few bucks, PLEASE donate. I have a link that will take you directly to paypal below, or if you want you can PM me for my address to send a check.

Benefits to you:

Since this site will really take off soon, and I see each and every one of our members now as being the start, if you donate and you want I will change your title to "STi Donating Member' or something to signify your donation.


Just click on the link above and it will take you through the donation process. If the link doesn't work, or you want to send an international payment, please go to paypal and use my paypal address: [email protected]

Please put your board username/email etc in the paypal message so I can recognize your contribution.


THANKYOU!! :)

.... I just wanted to let you know that your domain "imprezawrxsti.com" is doing a large amount of traffic and has already done 9.34GB of traffic out of the 12GB you have allowed for that domain. Since its only December 10th you might want to think about upgrading to the next hosting plan to cover the amount of traffic you are doing, or if you would rather we can set you up with a custom plan just let us know what you are would like to do.

Please email me with any questions,
Thanks, Ben

I would donate a few bucks, but your account won't accept international payments. If you change this, I might offer a few bucks.

I've been following this site religiously for the past few months and am grateful for all of the info that has been posted thus far. Everyone who uses this site should at least donate SOMETHING!

Anyway, the reason for this message is that THE LINK WILL NOT WORK TO THE PAYPAL ACCOUNT! I don't know if it's just my computer or not, but it keeps telling me that an error is detected. I've never had problems using paypal before and can enter the site without problem if I type paypal.com. It would be a good idea to 1)post the paypal account name so a person can enter money manually, and 2)fix the link.

Post the paypal account name and I'll send you some dough!

Thanks for letting me know about that. My paypal account name is:

[email protected]

Also, I have enabled international payments, but you will have to manually pay me at the above paypal address.

THANKS

Hey JJ - just wanted to let you know I put in $50. I'm not a rich guy and wish I could've done more. I've been checking this site probably 2x/day since I found out about it, felt almost indebted to you (in particular) and the rest of the forum members for all the information. I think you've done a great job here and hope this goes some way towards offsetting your costs. Keep up the good work and let's collectively pray this monster comes to us even sooner! Take care.

JJ,

Great site. I donated $25.00 to the cause via PayPal. I emailed you off line to let you know who it was from. My PayPal account is under a different e-mail address.

I pitched in $25 via Paypal and sent you a PM since I did not see an entry place in the Paypal screen to enter my userId.

Great job, this site is full of good info.

Thanks, Chris
